  1. i think it would be cool for Todd to do some marvel figs based on his own artwork on Spidey & Hulk. i look forward to wolvie with Hulk's reflection painted on the claws lol
  2. got first appearance spidey using the 25% off coupon at Target today. pretty psyched since i missed him the first time around. nice figure, especially as i've been re-reading all the ditko issues recently
  3. multiverse is cool for introducing a new iteration of a character - either villainous or quirky or what-have you. the drawback is that its hard to establish stakes which is kind of important when we already know the lead character is gonna have plot armor. so they are mostly useful for fun one-offs but not great as the basis for a sprawling epic (probably why most of DC' crises have left me somewhat cold)
  4. Disney probably trying to soften the character up somewhat, a more kid-friendly Blade so to speak
  5. feels like it wasn't too long ago Jay predicted this would fail. oh well, too bad for all the nattering nabobs of negativity
  6. Giant Man is in no way as desirable a collector centerpiece as Galactus or the Sentinel. This is reflected in both the lower price and the more modest goal of 10,000 units. I'd say its off to a good start but still questionable as to whether it end up funded or not. There aren't exactly a lot of surprises with this one so feels like anybody whos going to get on board will likely do so fairly quickly, then the numbers will probably flatline up until the final 48 hours or so.
  7. I feel like if they had to do an ML Haslab, this is a pretty good choice. Personally i don't have a need for a 24 inch Giant Man figure with all that hand articulation etc. For me, a BAF or deluxe Giant-Man roughly the same height and articulation scheme as the mcu Giant-Man BAF would have sufficed, but i get that for a Haslab its gotta be more deluxe than retail offerings. To me, it makes sense to create tiers that really only have value to someone interested in the main offering, rather than having figures like Jarvis or whomever trapped behind a $400 firewall. as for other versions of Hank or Jan etc I'm sure like Galactus they have some figures in the pipeline that they plan to release to coincide with Giant Man's shipping date. Wasp is certainly well-known enough to get her own release, although with Hasbro surely it will be as part of a 2-pack including a repaint of a figure we already all own lol. All that said, kinda doubt this gets funded. I just don't think Giant Man is that popular, plus i'm sure between the Sentinel and Galactus many collectors are realizing that its not all that easy to display your regular MLs when you have one of these colossal ones around.
  8. picked up Blob at msrp from 3rd party on amazon. Cool figure, pricey but hey still cheaper than if he was a BAF imo. Maybe he'll go on sale eventually but i dunno been awhile and it seems like he's held at msrp or higher afaik. Also picked up the Moondragon/Drax set (plus Nalan Cheel to get free shipping). That 2-pack feels like a good value as Drax is such a hefty figure. Both are pretty nice and again perhaps could've waited for the next pulse sale but since it didn't feel like a rip-off i didn't mind paying. my local target has a lot of the 60th anniv sets in, and actually if you start at the base price of $25 a figure, most of the sets are not unreasonably priced - there doesn't seem to be much of an anniversary tax like there usually. otoh everyone knows to play the waiting game with these by now and i feel like any figures 25+ are a tough sell for casuals (like parents with kids). so we'll see how things play out. I mostly want the Monica/Doom 2-pack, maybe Hawkeye with cycle. I do want Spider-Woman but find that super-skrull figure ugly (as in aesthetically displeasing) so he's a tough sell for me. THe Infinity saga wave/line is fine, cool for people who were missing members. I'm guessing they are pricier than normal so will probably only use to maybe fill in gaps like Banner, maybe
  9. Luke Cage is a must. Lady Bullseye also a likely addition. Clea and Blade are maybes. Not much interest in Fist, Daredevil, or Iron Man and can certainly live without Mindless One so my guess is I'll grab Luke and wait on a sale for Lady B then clearance for any others (or just skip them). Wonder Man and Molecule Man remain my most recent ML pickups aside from Target exclusives. Been a very slow year for ML purchases for me.
  10. yeah too bad i already bought MM and Wonder Man. Hope Orb and Strucker go on sale for $12.50 soon ,though. I wouldn't mind Cap or IM either altho at that point I'd probably just finish the wave to complete BAF
  11. Spotted full cases of Puff adder wave at 2 local Walmarts, grabbed a Wonder Man and Molecule Man. I also want Orb and Strucker but they will have to wait for a sale. Really digging Wondy and while Molecule Man has his flaws glad to finally have this guy in the collection. One Walmart also had a full case of the Spiderverse wave so i finally got a good look at all of them in person. Just not my bag - Spider Punk is the most appealing to me, but he looks so skinny i find myself doubring his joints will hold up. But if he's on sale later might grab him. But for now I'm happy with the 3 spider-verse figs i have from the Stilt man wave (skipped Prowler) So i guess the only wave i'm still looking out for is Ch'od. My next most anticipated figure is probably Blob or Ronan, but i'm still hesitant on both due to the price. I'll have to get them eventually though
  12. i think dropping all the eps of Echo at once suggests Disney doesn't have much confidence in how the series turned out
  13. i did find a case of Yondu at my local Target this week, on the same endcap with the mcu GotG. So if you haven't seen any in your store yet, maybe check that display in the next week or two.
  14. yeah of the 2023 figs out now Wonder Man is probably my most wanted. I would have thought Molecule Man would be my top priority but he's not classic enough for me - he's too tall and not a huge fan of the head sculpt. Plus i don't get why fireballs he should have those cosmic bubbles like silver surfer / havok etc have
  15. I think that Molten Man figure was pretty lame. mostly i think the BAFs are pretty decent, even though lately the comic ones are mostly re-use. feels like at this point they are moving more to deluxe figures instead of BAFs when it comes to more well-known characters (e.g., Lizard, Ronan, Blob) and making BAFs for characters that aren't as well known. I still think comic BAFS may go the way of the dodo altho mcu BAFS continue to make sense imo.
